When first starting out in the online casino world, it’s best to get an overview of some of the legalities that comes with it. As you may have noticed reading through the Beginners Guide, not a lot of online casinos cater to US players. Laws and regulations stipulated within online casinos, as well as, brick and mortar vary from state to state. Although, legislation with online gambling is sometimes unclear, one important note to remember is there is no federal law preventing US players from gambling online.


UIGEA stands for ‘Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act’ and it was established in 2006. In a nutshell, the UIGEA prohibits the transfer of funds from a financial institution, (like a bank, credit card companies etc.) to online gambling sites. This law in fact has upset quite a few people as well as financial institutions with good reason. The law is regarded as confusing and totally unclear at best. Not too many know that the bill to push UIGEA legislation was carefully tucked away underneath another bill called ‘Safe’ – Security and Accountability for Everyone.

As you can well imagine, those involved with online gambling are doing their best to have the bill reversed and thrown out all together. This especially rings true for professional poker players who endorse certain sites. Online Poker sites, as well as, players are trying to make the game more of a ‘skill’ trade instead of being termed a game of chance. It’s really only a matter of time until they succeed.

To help out, here is a list of casinos not affected by the UIGEA Laws that accept US players:

Slots Oasis
Cherry Red
Rushmore Casino
Club World
Super Slots
Winpalace Casino
